A man reported he had been contacted by Susan Berry, 48, of Marblehead, Mass., which violated a protection order issued by Norwalk Super Court. The protection order stemmed from a previous arrest in which Berry was ordered to have no contact with the victim, police said.

The victim said he was asleep at his residence on Feb. 1, when he heard someone banging on his door around 2 a.m., police said. The man stated he saw Berry walking away from his apartment to her vehicle, police said.
